EternaTile can be installed on any existing sloped roof with a 3:12 or steeper without engineer approval because of its light weight. The tile product is designed to have a lifetime warranty and the Eterna”G” replaceable solar module makes the entire product line a catalyst in the building sector.
- Cool roof coatings on tile keep it cool and improve energy production. The cool roof coating has high emissivity on the sun side to allow heat to be radiated out and low emissivity underneath, making the tiles a radiant barrier.
- The efficient above-sheathing ventilation on the tile system provides a chimney effect as warm air flows between the tiles and the roof deck and out from the building. In winter, the air gap between the tiles and roof deck are insulating, reducing the heat transfer out of the attic.
The limits of green-roof feasibility are being redefined by ZinCo’s Summer Plains system combined with Aquatec. An extensive or intensive green roof can be created on a flat, sloped or even an inverted roof, depending on the selected substrate depth and the suitability of the plants for the given location. The first layer is a protective layer on the root-resistant waterproofing membrane. This is followed by the Aquatec AT 45 water distribution, storage and drainage elements in conjunction with the DV 40 wicking mat. Water is drawn upward through the wicking mat and made available to the substrate directly in the root area. The system is intended for all green roofs that require an additional irrigation system and will provide particular cost savings in arid regions where irrigation is required.
Two color options are available: clear or white. A grade incorporating a UV-enhanced cap layer is available as Makrolon SK1 polycarbonate sheet.
Makrolon SK polycarbonate sheet provides commercial skylight and daylighting system manufacturers with a high-impact-strength glazing material that allows for reductions in lighting costs due to its balance of light transmission and diffusion.
Applications such as commercial skylights, canopies, overhangs, awnings and covered pedestrian walkways can all benefit from the combination of outstanding properties offered by this single material solution.
